Many of us fall into bed taking all our worries and stress with us. Not surprisingly, this results in tossing and turning, overthinking, and poor quality sleep. Affirmations are an effective – and easy way – to help transform negative thought patterns into positive ones, with the added benefit of reducing our stress and anxiety levels and improving our sleep. Repeating sleep affirmations is a powerful way to ‘trick’ our subconscious mind and body into relaxing.

It’s been scientifically proven that affirmations trigger the release of ‘feel-good’ endorphins, natural stress-relieving chemicals produced by the brain that help us to feel happier, less anxious, and more positive. Thinking positive thoughts before falling asleep also helps us to access a deeper quality of sleep, while decreasing our chances of having nightmares, being restless, and waking up in the middle of the night.

Why is sleep such an issue for most of us?

The fast-paced lives that we live these days mean that we often try to cram too much into our day. Add that to the fact that many of us are working at computers and laptops during the day, then spending our evenings glued to tablets and smartphones! This interferes with light-sensitive cells in the eye’s retina which then interrupts our natural circadian rhythms and may have a negative effect on our sleep patterns.

How to Use Sleep Affirmations

The reason that sleep affirmations work is that they encourage the brain to relax into a meditative mindset. Focusing on affirmation helps to silence our brain and to break the pattern of overthinking. Sometimes when we have a problem, we go over and over it as we try to find a solution, and in turn, this leads to overthinking, anxiety and sleeplessness. While sleep affirmations won’t ‘magic’ away your problems, they do give your brain time to rest and break negative thinking patterns.
